ESA 'Couture in Orbit' fashion show at London's Science Museum as a part of the museum's 'LATES' programme
Students from leading European fashion schools presented space inspired designs made out of high-quality functional materials by Sympatex Technologies at the 'Couture in Orbit' runway show held at London's Science Museum.

Sympatex Technologies sponsored high-quality functional laminates for the innovative project. The students were given the task to find inspiration by space technologies and missions and develop futuristic fashion for daily life. Issues such as earth observation, climate change, health technology and innovation reflected in the designs.

It was the first major fashion show staged as a part of the museum's 'LATES' program by the Science Museum in London and European Space Agency (ESA).

The students of five fashion schools - ESMOD Berlin, ESMOD Paris, Fashion Design Akademiet in Copenhagen, Politecnico di Milano and Ravensbourne in London, displayed 30 creative designs.

Haymo Strubel, director, Apparel at Sympatex, said,  “We are absolutely amazed to see what the students have created from our materials. It was a pleasure to join the project as a partner – especially since sponsoring new talents with projects like 'Couture in Orbit' is an integral part of our mission statement.” (HO)
